You should be offended against any type of prejudice. Steve Jobs would be 66 right now, Bill Gates is what - 65?

Clearly not everyone has the same skills - but to imply that someone could not because of their age is offensive.
I'm over 70. A lot of new technology is over my head. And by the way I don't consider pointing out that fact as prejudice. It is very common for people of my age to have not kept up. We simply have other things we care about. Like our grandkids. However, if you enjoy being offended by every little word that doesn't fit your world and life view, go ahead. But if you decide to go that route, expect to have a real crappy life.

Do we think Podz is closer to his 247 ranking (70ish) or his composite (150ish)? That’s a pretty massive spread.
This is a really good question. I would go with somewhere in the 80-90 range. Super talented kid, can score in a lot of different ways. He will end up averaging double digit points by the time he is an upperclassman, maybe sooner. A little shaky on d, but he can come and give us really good minutes right away. I think he has tremendous upside and can be a difference maker down the road for us.

On Podz... would a Justin Powell comp be appropriate? I know JP was 3 star 100 + last year but was dynamite Freshman at Auburn (also in portal...expect going back to KY) edit..guess Powell just committed to Tennessee yesterday

I'd probably have him closer to the 60-70 range personally but who cares lol.
